Hiring a tradesman to install or repair a fuse box

Your fuse box is a key part of your home’s electricity supply, and fundamental for home safety. A faulty fuse box can cause a lot of problems. You may want a new boiler because your home currently has an older model. It should go without saying that when working with dangerous amounts of electricity, it is best to hire a certified professional.

Finding a highly qualified Pro who will charge a competitive price is much simpler through Plentific. The Plentific website can quickly generate a bespoke contact list of tradesmen in your local area that offer the services you need, and each will have a Plentific profile where you can view their qualifications, services, experience and customer reviews. Managing and messaging Pros is simple from the Plentific Dashboard, while the Plentific Wallet allows you to pay your Pros quickly and securely online. Best of all, each and every job booked via Plentific will be covered by the Plentific Guarantee.

What do I need to know about installing or repairing a fuse box?

There are a few things you will need to know if you are planning to install a new fuse box. Firstly, do not be tempted to do so just because your model is old. It would have been fitted according to the safety standards of the time. The danger of an old fuse box comes from the wiring connected to it, as it may have worn down over time. If you are thinking of replacing your fuse box, you may want to book an Electrical Installation Condition Report to see if your current one is up to standard.

Newer fuse boxes are much more sensitive than older models. If they detect a fault they can shut off a circuit in under 0.3 seconds. An electrician will test your current system before replacing it in order to better facilitate any necessary alteration work, such as repairing any wiring. After the installation, the new fuse box will be tested to make sure that no additional work is required. Once the inspection is completed you will be presented with an Electrical Installation Certificate, which will detail any faults. Make sure that the inspection is carried out by the same person who installs the new fuse box. It may be that your home’s wiring will not reach the new fuse box, or you might encounter another error. Obviously, if issues like this need to be addressed before the installation, your quote will be higher.

It is important that your fuse box installation or repair is handled by a qualified electrician. A professional will have passed an apprenticeship or equivalent industry qualification. Be sure to ask for proof of this - any tradesman that is hesitant or refuses to provide proof is not one you should consider hiring. They may also belong to a national tradesmans’ association, such as the Electrical Contractor’s Association (ECA). These groups have high standards for quality of work and professionalism which members are obligated to meet. Your final hire should have active public liability and private indemnity insurance, as well as a guarantee for their work.

The cost of installing or repairing a fuse box will depend on the details of the job. A standard installation, including labour, materials and testing, will cost around £400, but this is assuming there are no faults to repair. New earth bonding, for example, could add an extra £200 to your bill. The number of circuits and outlets regulated by your fuse box will also be an influencing factor. Do not simply go for your cheapest option in order to save money: any faults that are not addressed will only get worse over time and can be a great danger for your home.
